DZ DeathraysFormerly DZ, Brisbane based DZ Deathrays had limited success. Debut song Gebbie St. whacks you in the face with the all too familiar bass and rhythmic drums of DFA1979. Although, this is a whole new generation. With limited possibility of Death From Above 1979 reforming regarding their reunion gig in which they requested seperate dressing rooms, there is copious amounts of room for DZ Deathrays to steal their spotlight. What's admirable about them is that they have attempted to break away from the stereotypes of Australian music by doing something different to stir things up and it has been successful. Their blend of thrash with percussive elements brings something new to a new music scene which has been overpopulated with electronic acts. You're not going to be hearing them on your radio any time soon but you can guarantee that this lively Australian duo will be coming to an obscure venue near you.
